It is so precious to watch a sibling excited to know they have a little baby brother or sister coming along .... a new little play buddy! And it's a new experience for you as well when welcoming your second child as you have these beautiful interactions between your first born and your beautiful bump, knowing once your second bub is born, a special little friendship is about to begin! It was such a treat watch Cate and Simon and their little man Frankie all spending time with Mummy's baby bump! We photographed this little family in our East Brisbane studio the week before their second little boy was due to arrive and we are IN LOVE with the beautiful ...

Waiting...for a brother or sister!

When little Miranda-Belle visited our studio with her mum and dad for a family shoot, she had us all captivated!  Only 19 months old, she was just adorable in her little dresses – some of which had been worn by her mum when she was a little girl!  Here she is in a rare quiet moment, exploring the pregnant tummy of her mummy.  We can only wonder what is going through her little mind as she awaits the arrival of her baby brother or sister…  maybe (just maybe) when Miranda-Belle is older she will see this image and be able to tell her parents what she remembers of that special time.  

That’s one of the amazing things ...

What a Delight!

It’s true babies are BEAUTIFUL!  What a handsome man this little boy will grow into.

Albert was a delight to photograph. His adorable features and big beautiful eyes were infectious, along with this cheeky charismatic smile.

When Albert and his proud parents walked into the Katrina Christ Photographer Studio immediately you could feel the love that surrounds this family and how head over heels mum and dad were for their little baby boy.

Photographing this precious moment in their life and capturing Albert at this age illustrates how innocent and pure children are.

They are a true blessing!

Looking at this photograph I see; joy, kindness and something so precious and special.

 A memory Albert can now look back ...

Wow.  We just LOVE this image.  What do you think?  We cannot wait to see the finished canvas!

And all the more beautiful with clients as lovely as Tifany and Craig, who have just welcomed their son Tyler into the world just a couple of weeks ago... A BIG congratulations goes out to you.  Our Melbourne photographer Natasha spent the afternoon at their home and had a wonderful time.  They were so easy going and a breeze to photograph, and young Tyler turned on the charm for his photographic debut!

We captured a range of beautiful  images in our colourful Lifestyle range, as well as our classic black and white Signature range.  Craig will have the busy job ...

A letter on my doorstep - portraits are more than paper.

A friend of mine shared this blog with me just last week, and, as you will see too, it is just so beautiful, and so sad, that I just had to share it with you all...

There will be no portrait photos in this post.  This letter wasn’t mailed – it was at my doorstep when I got home a couple months ago.  I read it, I cried, and read it again – probably a hundred times by now.  It wasn’t easy to read – and honestly, as much as it validates what I do for a living – I wasn’t sure I was going to share it either.  If you choose to read through the letter, you will know ...

We had this amazing family visit our East Brisbane studio for an awesome photo shoot with their gorgeous teenage boys! While they kept us all giggling the entire shoot, I have to say Mum stole the show with her bubbly personality! And just look at her gorgeous smile! Mum was especially happy when she came to collect her stunning framed series, which really reflected the lovely relationship these parents have with their kids! Ek was soooooo excited when she came to collect her beautiful framed series and made sure she left us with lots of giggles! Also, just a little bit proud of her boys :) We love these special moments between husband & wife as well....look at the looooove!...

What would you like to achieve with your family photo shoot?

We absolutely live in a digital world, however, printing your photos will always have more of an impact than looking at them on a screen (remember....every screen looks different too!). It is a stunning and meaningful way to tell your family story and the relationships you all have with each other. Before your photo shoot - we recommended looking at your walls at home and figuring out what you would love to see hanging there - what photographic moment? and displayed how? will it match with your home decor? Is it in a room you love and spend a lot of time in? How big are your walls?

Essentially, you want to create something you will love forever and something ...

What to wear to your photo shoot!

If you are after a fun casual style photographic experience, we suggest that everyone wear plain white tops, T-shirts, stretch tops, polo shirts, singlet tops, etc and a pair of jeans and no shoes. Mums and daughters - feel free to wear a gorgeous white dress! And for babies, a plain white jumpsuit is lovely.  If whites/lighter colours are not what you would normally wear, absolutely feel free to wear black/navy or darker colours that you feel comfortable! If you are after a more classical and stylish look, your family could wear white collared shirts and tailored tops with plain dark pants (if you are undecided why not have both on hand!).  The simpler the better! Any logo’s, colours or ...

Mummy and Daughter - 6 month old photo shoot

A month or two ago we had some new studio lights installed and had a range of families into our East Brisbane Studio to help us test the best lighting set-up at different times of the day (as we also use natural light), as well as different sized families. We thought this was a really special shoot as it was just Mummy and her little girl, Camille - who was actually six months old at her photo shoot! She had lots of smiles for us and I think really enjoyed having that play time with mummy! And look at how cute she is as an elf!!! We hope you have a wonderful first Christmas! xo

These Brisbane parents were so calm at their photo shoot with their gorgeous little baby boy, Lachlan and fur baby Tonka! We decided to capture lots of different moments including the family together as well as some special time alone with Mum & Dad. What a beautiful family story they have told! Lachie was quite sleep in his photos, but then opening his piercing eyes for a few and looked straight into the camera! Adorable! He was also very good at sharing cuddles with his fur brother.....though I am not sure he had the choice?! haha :) We hope to see you all again....maybe with another member added to the family!
